Wildwood venue for Trump rally can hold 7K, town expects double that
President Donald Trump is expected to hold a rally later this month in Wildwood, bringing thousands of supporters to Cape May County.
The rally will be held at the Wildwood Convention Center on Jan. 28 at 7 p.m. The convention center can only hold 7,000 people. But according to a report by NJ.com
, at least double that amount of people are expected to attend.
Wildwood is part of New Jersey’s 2nd Congressional District – a district represented by Rep. Jeff Van Drew. Van Drew made headlines late last year for switching parties from Democrat to Republican. He was also one of the few Democrats who voted against impeaching Trump.
Officials of the Jersey Shore community say that they aren’t used to having thousands of people in Wildwood during the winter. But they say that they are excited about the boost in tourism for the area.
Trump campaign spokesman Michael Glassner says, "President Trump looks forward to returning to the Garden State to celebrate his message of 'Promises Made, Promises Kept.'"
A Republican hasn't carried New Jersey in a presidential election since George H.W. Bush back in 1988.
